I spent over three hours a day practicing, but to be a clapper talk artist, per
formers must first memorize the lines, talk with rhythm, and gradually increase speed,” he上海千花网
says. To fully understand the lines, foreign performers have to learn a lot about Chinese culture.
上海千花网女神会所After graduating from the university in 2016, Komatsu first tried his han
d at business but failed. So, he worked as a Japanese teacher in a language training school.
Despite the pressure of work and life, Komatsu performs clapper talk with his teacher a上海千花网女神会所
nd fellow senior apprentices in theaters, communities, campuses and parks, though most of the performances are free.
Now, in his team, there are performers from Japan, Germany, Sweden and Britain.
上海千花网In August 2018, Komatsu decided to go back to Japan. However, he returned to Beijing half a year later.
Explaining why he came back, he says: “I missed my f
riends, Chinese culture and food too much, and life would be boring without them.”上海千花网女神会所
Komatsu has now decided to spend the rest of his life in China and continue with his hobby.
上海千花网He says: “I hope more Japanese will visit and learn more about China, so as to strengthen the friendship between the two countries.”
What makes Pablo Picasso such a quintessential 20th-century artist? It’s partly down to the visual ground he b上海千花网
roke with his Cubist painting, but some also has to do with the fact his interests extended far beyond painting.
Picasso’s innovations in perspective and technique dazzled the art world for d上海千花网女神会所
ecades, paving the way for many of the important artistic movements of the last century.
As art historians and critics emphasize the visual ground he broke with his Cubist painting, Picass上海千花网
o’s poetry and other written works are often overlooked in discussions of his long and varied career.
The artist did not begin to write until the age of 53. His literary endeavors r上海千花网女神会所

He added that the proposed policy encourages better technology as more efficient power consumption will earn more credits.
上海千花网女神会所Analysts said the plan’s release will help carmakers to coordinate their production plans, es
pecially international ones, which have been slower than Chinese ones to respond to policy changes.
Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen AG, called for a stable policy envi上海千花网
ronment at the World New Energy Vehicle Congress held in early July in Hainan province.
The German carmaker said almost half of its new energy vehicles produced in 2028 will
上海千花网女神会所be made in China. China has been the largest market for new energy vehicles since it overtook the United States in 2015.
So far there are around 3.5 million such vehicles on its roads.
The country’s new energy vehicle sales surged 65.9 percent year-on-year to 577,000 units上海千花网
during the January-June period, data from the China Passenger Car Association showed.
上海千花网女神会所The draft proposal is expected to help boost hybrids as well, to which Japanese carmakers have devoted much time and money.
They would still be considered fossil-fueled but re-classified as “low fuel consu
mption passenger vehicles” and thus will incur less negative points than traditional vehicles.
Under the current system, automakers in China are obliged to make up for a portion of the negative points they incur whe上海千花网女神会所
n they produce internal combustion engine vehicles with points won for producing new energy vehicles.
Analysts said the revision could see more traditional vehicles replaced with hybrids, because when automakers prod
uce hybrids. The proposed change came as a surprise, some experts and industry officials said, because the gove上海千花网女神会所
rnment has never before given any preferential treatment for hybrid technology.
“The new proposed policy is a roundabout way to promote hybrid cars,” said Cui in a social media post.
rt Museum, Peking Opera became popular in Yantai back in the 19th century after some famous Peking Opera maste
rs performed there, including Tan Xinpei (1847-1917), the founder of Tan-style performance.上海千花网品茶微信
Tan, who gave three shows in Yantai in 1868, was the first Peking Opera master who performed in Yantai.
上海千花网Peking Opera master Zhou Xinfang (1895-1975) made his debut performance in Yantai in 1907 when he was 12 years old.
After that he performed in Yantai six times from 1907 to 1931, which made him a household name in the city.
“Then, Peking Opera troupes which toured the country stopped by the docks at the上海千花网品茶微信
port in Yantai. as the city was regarded as a place which could test the popularity of the artists,” says Zhang.
During the summer camp, the Yantai Art Museum will also hold Peking O
上海千花网pera exhibitions, displaying artworks based on the old art form, including paper-cutting, in
k paintings, sculptures and facial makeup, which introduce the history and characters of Peking Opera.
On Aug 7, the exhibition will move to Beijing.上海千花网
Meanwhile, according to Zhang Zuling, the director of Yantai Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism, Yantai has 10 pr

In 2018, a project was launched by the government to promote Peking Opera in Yantai, especially among the young generation.
An original Peking Opera production Liberation of Yantai, which chronicles Yantai’s上海千花网品茶微信
liberation during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1931-1945), was premiered by Yantai Pekin

Speaking about the project, Zhang Zuling says: “In 2018, over 80 million tourists came to Y上海千花网品茶微信

上海千花网Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen and other secessionists on the island ma
y feel exhilarated about the US State Department on Monday approving the pot
ential sale to Taiwan of $2.2 billion in arms, considering the move to be a sign that they will be able to count on the U上海千花网品茶微信
nited States for help should there be a military confrontation with the Chinese mainland.
And for those in the US who consider Taiwan as a pawn the US can use上海千花网
in its competition with China, the sale of arms represents not only a profitable deal, but also
a hedge to maintain the status quo in which they can regard Taiwan as an independent entity.上海千花网品茶微信
Tsai and her followers should know that their exhilaration is nothing but whistling past the
graveyard. The more arms the island buys from the US, the less safe the island becomes as efforts to bu上海千花网
ild up the island’s military capabilities only serve to send a clear message of secessionism to the mainland.
Tsai and her followers should not underestimate the mainland’s resolve to defend the nation’s sovereignty and territ
orial integrity. The farther the island moves away from the possible peaceful reunion w
ith its motherland, the more resolute the mainland will become to take the island back by force.
By building up its military defense, Tsai is playing a game of brinkmanship.
Making use of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become a hub
With its modern industrial system, Tianhe district in Guangzhou, South China’s Guangdong province, is seizing the oppo上海千花网品茶微信
rtunities brought about by the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become an
international first-class central business district, an international core area for innovation in science and t
上海千花网echnology, and a demonstration zone for Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao cooperation.
Its solid industrial foundation and favorable business environment, as well as the gove
rnment’s strong policy support, attract large numbers of enterprises to the district.上海千花网品茶微信
By the end of November, 162 out of the Fortune Global 500 enterprises had invested in 228 proj
上海千花网ects in finance, science and technology, trade and commercial services in Tianhe. It is the city
‘s center for headquarters, with 104, or 29 percent of the total across Guangzhou, making Tianhe’s business dis
trict one of the three largest world-class central business districts in China. Among these, 95 percent of the h上海千花网
eadquarters in Tianhe are in the service sector and 25 headquarters are foreign-funded ventures.
上海千花网In the first three quarters of 2017, Tianhe’s GDP hit 304 billion yuan ($46 billion), up 9.5 percen
t year-on-year. Its GDP has been the highest among all the districts in Guangzhou for 10 years consecutively.
More importantly, experts said innovation, high-tech and service上海千花网
sectors have become the driving force of the district’s economic growth. The district go
上海千花网品茶微信vernment focuses more on quality rather than quantity when it comes to the economy.
With 53 innovation platforms and 51 startup incubators above city level, the district government is carrying out what it c
alls its “super incubator” strategy. It is making use of old industrial parks, factory workshops and public sites co上海千花网品茶微信
llectively owned by villagers to provide a platform for startups and to foster local economic growth. So far, Tianhe has cr
eated 29 of this kind of incubators for startups and innovation, covering a total area of 1.11 million square meters. The di
strict is also implementing a convenient “five-in-one” new business registration system.上海千花网品茶微信
As a center of finance and technology industries, Tianhe has 215 registered financial agencie
s and 33 enterprises listed on the stock market. It boasts 378 research and development institutes set u
p by enterprises, 86 institutes affiliated to universities and governments, and 239 engineering technology research centers.上海千花网品茶微信
Last year, 4,312 patent applications were submitted in Tianhe, 32 percent
of the city’s total and a rise of 45 percent year-on-year. Among these 1,158 patents were granted.
By the end of last year, Tianhe had 1,403 high and new-technology ent

More efforts are needed from Chinese companies to explore the potential of massive data as mounting firms globally own “d
上海千花网女神会所ark data” and very few know how to use it, an industry insider said during the three-day Annual Meeting of the New Ch
ampions 2019, also known as Summer Davos, which ended Wednesday in Dalian, Liaoning province.
“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “da
rk data”, which refers to all the unknown and untapped data generated by an org上海千花网女神会所
anization’s systems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se
上海千花网curity markets of Splunk, a US company leveraging software to search and analyze data.
“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opportu
nities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.上海千花网女神会所
Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect d
ata but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.
上海千花网女神会所In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial int
elligence, across the platform to help companies better use “dark data”, as well as predict future outcomes.
Splunk, founded in 2003, is a Nasdaq-listed company. Its total revenues hit $425 mil上海千花网女神会所
lion for its fiscal first quarter ending April 30 this year, which was a 36 percent increase year-on-year.
“I am glad to see that here in China, companies are putting the use of AI into a higher-than-ever role in their b
usinesses,” she said, adding that she was confident about business growth in the country.
